SOUL AT RISK
(3/10/15)


Brother Bollocks
dreads
the Holy
Seasons

all that hype
piled upon such
simple teachings

basic instructions
for living
practically buried
beneath layers
of myth
and bureaucracy

historically
he understands
why the superstitions
and institutions
were created

why they have
to be
maintained

the prosaic
words
of a rabbi
are simply
not enough
to sustain
the majority
through the more
trying
of times

the Church
provides motive
and muscle

Brother Bollocks
dons
his sacred vestments

appraises
his appearance
in the mirror

practices
a beneficent
smile

show time
once again

he has
fans
to consider
after all
